Where are you working? Title? JPMorgan Chase & Co., software engineer

How did you get your job? I learned about opportunities at JPMorgan Chase & Co. at an informational session hosted on-campus by Upsilon Pi Epsilon (UPE), FIU’s largest technology organization. I interviewed and received an offer to participate in an internship program as a software engineering at their Chicago office. After completing the internship in summer of 2018, I received an offer to return to the company as a full-time software engineer. I now work out of JPMorgan Chase & Co.’s headquarters in New York City.

What was your greatest fear going into your first job and how did you face it or overcome it? Not having in-depth knowledge of the financial industry and how the company’s products and services operate in this space. Thankfully, the firm did an amazing job onboarding me and providing the necessary training. It gave me the confidence to take on new challenges and work with different stakeholders.
